McKayla Langmeier Masters $25,000 Traverse City National Grand Prix

McKayla Langmeier Masters $25,000 Traverse City National Grand Prix

Continuing her winning streak, McKayla Langmeier of East Grandby, CT, captured another big win Saturday in the $25,000 Traverse City National Grand Prix, this time aboard Chadina. Opening the Great Lakes Equestrian Festival (GLEF), presented by CaptiveOne, with two wins, the young rider is quickly accumulating points toward the CaptiveOne Leading Open Jumper Rider Bonus to be awarded at the end of the season. 

Despite just three entries jumping clear over Catsy Cruz’s (MEX) first-round track and advancing to the jump-off, the pace was quick and competition kept getting more intense as the riders came forward. Mimi Gochman, winner of Friday’s $37,000 Innovo CSI3* Welcome Stake, jumped off first with Andretti BH, but pulled the first rail to finish on 4 faults. Cathleen Driscoll, second in the Welcome, produced the first double-clear in a very quick time of 39.428 seconds. 

Topping Driscoll was going to take nerve, but Langmeier stepped up to the plate and shaved off two seconds, navigating the 9-year-old Oldenburg mare (Conthargos x Narew) to a clear-round time of 37.447 seconds for the win. Driscoll claimed second place while Gochman took third.
